Remove outer skins of kohlrabi bulb with potato peeler, and cut into matchstick sized slices. Place in mixing bowl.

For best taste, allow the kohlrabi to marinate for 30 minutes.
Kohlrabi is a powerhouse of Vitamin C, but only if you eat it raw. A single cup of raw kohlrabi has almost 84mg of vitamin C, which is more than enough to meet your daily requirement.
Kohlrabi leaves are edible and can be used interchangeably with collard greens and kale. They are also high in B-vitamins, vitamin A and vitamin K. Chop the leaves finely and add it to this dish for an extra nutritional boost.
